b) Please attach additional information reflecting your hockey background as a coach, hockey background as a player, outline your coaching philosophy and your season plan for the team you are applying for? Identify your strengths and weaknesses and goals/objectives for the team you are applying for?

A Selection Committee, consisting of the Select Convenor, Director of Coach & Player development and at least one non-executive member, will review the applications and conduct interviews with the candidates. Select Coach Selection Committee will decide if there is an offer to interview. Note all applicants will NOT be offered an interview. If you have not been contacted within 2 weeks of the application deadline regarding an interview date, you will not be receiving an interview. This includes new & current coaches.

When rating candidates, the selection committee will consider a number of factors - previous coaching experience at the level, coaching certifications, performance in the interview, whether the candidate is a non-parent, length of time with existing team, suitability of parent/child placement, references and skill level rating of the coach’s child relative to other players if the child is trying out for the team.

The Selection Committee will then make a recommendation of the best candidates for each team. These recommendations will be discussed and ratified at the Board level. Applicants that the committee selects as the primary choice for a given team will be contacted by the committee after executive board approval and offered that team for the upcoming season. Upon the applicant’s acceptance of the team, non successful applicants will be contacted immediately to notify them of the committees’ decision.

Please feel free to email Todd Shedden, Select Convenor ([email protected]) to discuss the coaching role if you want to get a better understanding of the process and expectations of a head coach.
